A reflection

It definitely feels like I’ve had one of those days. I got a call after lunch informing me my younger brother had been involved in a car accident, after everything else that’s happened lately my reaction was to panic (a bit?), fortunately he is fine and unhurt but I remember as I rushed home from work asking myself what did we do deserve all the bad things that seem to have happened lately. At times like this I often find myself either praying for help, or railing against God and how unfair his design seems to be.

Once I realised my brother was actually ok a rather random thought lept into my mind … it was something I heard once on a sci-fi show …

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. 
Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, 
and all the terrible things that happen to us come 
because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great 
comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.

                                              Marcus,  Babylon 5

There’s a lesson in there for each of us.
